Sons of the Graveyard

Iraq’s Wadi Al-Salam Cemetery in Najaf is the world’s largest and oldest graveyard. Millions of people are buried there, mostly Shia Muslims. In recent years, the number of funerals has sharply increased, a consequence of the various wars that have blighted Iraq. Veteran and novice gravediggers talk about their lives among the dead.

Watch "Sons of the Graveyard" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
